Weekend Blues

Had a busy weekend. No real holiday for me. Major church program on Sunday, prepping for it Saturday. To get in the spirit of the celebration, I followed Jonathan Williamson’s CG Cookie tutorial on creating a bunch of balloons. After some hemming and hawing, I ended up with this (Sky texture was a free download from CG Textures), with no compositing:


After doing some of the composition Jonathan mentioned in the video, I got a brighter (but personally not-as-pleasing result – I think the balloons had much better coloring/shadow in the first):


Anyhow, I was supposed to get a wallpaper from it, and since The Gospel According to Rap were to be guests for the service, I got their picture emailed to me. Unfortunately, due to sucky internet, I could only download half the picture, and even then only on my BlackBerry, so I ended up with this:

Hopefully, it wasn’t a complete waste of time, but I’ll let you decide. Anyhow, here are some pictures from the meeting, with a little love for the guys on the instruments:
